Between 6 p.m. of Thursday and 11 am of Friday, 52,900 chats related to both candidates on any topic were tracked. Once again, messages related to @hcapriles are the most, for a total of 35,400; accounting for 66% of all chats. This is the second day in a row including chats regarding opposition candidate Henrique Capriles Radonski, followed by the case of opposition deputy Juan José Caldera.
As much as 86% had a good assessment out of 35,400 direct mentions concerning Capriles, compared with 17,500 direct mentions, or 65% for @chavezcandanga.
Note that this is the day with the largest amount of mentions for @chavezcandanga since last September 3, the starting date of Tuitpulso. Nevertheless, this does not necessarily mean something in favor of Chávez. Out of the total chats related to @chavezcandanga, the most relevant, obviously with a poor assessment, was a twit directly forwarded to President Hugo Chávez by @hcapriles, stating as follows: "Please, @chavezcandanga, be serious and accountable. Stop lying Venezuelans about our proposals by using everybody's results."
Such twit also represents the first time that Capriles faces his rival Chávez on this social network during the probe. It has been the most re-twitted comment of @hcapriles since the beginning of his election campaign: 6,443 replies in 12 hours, that is, every eight seconds on average.
